Deep Six

I'm pretty organized.
When I start a project, I gather all the necessary fabric, trim notions, in a ziplock and I whenever ready or in the mood, I start on the project. 
I started this three years ago and you know what? I am not going to finish it. I hate the color, I hate the fabric I chose, I hate the fit, I loath the crotch, I hate the tiny pockets, this style of pants doesn't suit me and I am never ever going to wear them even if finish them. 

So I unpicked the zipper and chucked it.
This is supposed to be liberating right? It's not. I still have so much work. Pants geometry eludes me. I have yet to make a pair that looks, feels and fit right. 
I keep delaying the toile making, but I'm running out of options my favorite jeans are about to die and I'll have to do something about this very soon.
So I bought a Japanese jeans pattern, my favorite pair is Japanese, and I have just received the pant pattern that comes with Sandra Betzina's class.
I'll eventually get to a near distant future.

  1. I feel your pain. I recently chucked my muslin for a pair of Vogue trousers that had been in the making for a year and a half. I also just completed my first muslin for the Clovers - it's not looking good. Best of luck with the Japanese pattern.

    1. Thanks! I am stupidly crossing my fingers on this one! It doesn't help.

  2. I'm sure they'll evolve into something beautiful that you'll love!

    1. I'm glad that you people have more confidence in me than I do!
